I have a confession, I’m seriously obsessed with the Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette, it’s definitely my favourite of all the Naked palettes.
When I bought this palette I honestly didn’t think I would use it very often, it as the name suggests is basic, and really how often can you use a palette of mainly neutral matte eyeshadows. Man was I ever wrong! I have used this palette everyday (that I’ve worn makeup), since buying it. It’s become a staple in my makeup bag, and that’s saying a lot, because I have a serious collection of eyeshadow palettes.
On first glance, this palette really doesn’t look that exciting, compared to something like the Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette or the Naked 3, but looks are definitely deceiving, it’s small but mighty.
It contains 6 very neutral shades, 5 matte and 1 shimmer (Venus), and can be used for a variety of looks, from a light neutral day look to a dark smokey eye, and all of this is packed in a tiny little container (shorter than a NARS Creamy Concealer Tube).
The formula is super buttery and pigmented and blend well together. My favourite shades are Naked 2, which is not only the perfect crease colour, but a lovely colour for the lid and Venus, which is great for a brow bone highlight.
I cannot recommend this palette enough, it really can be used to create a multitude of looks. I’ve been travelling a lot recently, and this has been the only eyeshadow palette I’ve been packing, it has everything I need.
Have you tried the Naked Basics Palette?
